Fall City is blessed with an extensive and unique 520-page book on its history: Jack’s History of Fall City, published in 2006 by Jack E. Kelley. It brings together materials from over 15 years of research by Jack and Judy Kelley. During the three-year period it was being prepared for publication, the Fall City community shared family history with Jack, passed many things into his care, and stepped up to help with publication expenses. As the publication date neared, it seemed important to provide a way for this community enthusiasm for our local history to continue and to flourish. Thus, the decision was made to form the Fall City Historical Society. The Society was organized under the nonprofit umbrella of the Fall City Community Association in 2006.

The Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum, serving Fall City, Preston, Snoqualmie, North Bend, Cedar Falls and Snoqualmie Pass for nearly 50 years, came into being as the result of the initial work of one woman, Ada Snyder Hill. She came into the Valley in 1910 to teach school and early on began collecting the historic items that made up the exhibit she arranged for the 1939 celebration of the platting of North Bend. They were the nucleus for the present day collection that includes cherished artifacts and anecdotes from all corners of the Snoqualmie Valley.
